Harvey died on Nov. 29 at age 97. He co-discovered element 101, mendelevium, with Glenn Seaborg in 1955. He wrote the first scientific paper on plutonium chemistry during World War II, which caught the eye of Seaborg. At Seaborg’s urging, Harvey joined the Lab in 1953 and served as director of the 88-inch cyclotron and the Nuclear Science Division before retiring.
Harvey (far right) is pictured with (l-r) Bob Thornton, John Lawrence, Don Cooksey, and Ed McMillan at the closing of the 60-inch cyclotron in 1962.
A fuller obituary will be posted in TABL in the near future.
